Peugeot 2008 2024: price and specifications 


The French brand’s charming but slow-selling small SUV has just had a full electric E-2008 added to its line-up. Here’s everything you need to know

Peugeot’s 2008 is the smallest SUV in its range; the smaller cousin to its 3008 and 5008 medium SUVs.

An E-2008 GT version is Peugeot’s first battery electric passenger vehicle in Australia, a new flagship grade above the existing petrol versions.

The 2008 in all its forms is a niche offering: fewer than 200 have sold in 2023 to date. With the small SUV segment-leading MG ZS shifting 20,000 over the same time, the gulf between the little French SUV and strong-selling rivals is mighty.

The 2008’s relatively high price is a stumbling block, with the entry-level grade almost $40,000 before on-roads.

There are four variants to choose from: an entry-level Allure ($38,945), mid-spec GT ($43,397), petrol flagship GT Sport ($51,188) and the new fully electric E-2008 GT ($59,990).

A facelifted version has recently been revealed in Europe

The GT Sport has been retired for this model year, although Peugeot Australia’s online configurator still includes the MY22 2008 GT Sport model as some examples remain with dealers. 

While the GT Sport exists, the price difference between it and the full electric E-2008 is $8800. Once it goes, moving from the GT into the E-2008 is a hefty $16,600 jump, but that’s before any EV rebates are actioned (this varies depending on state).

A facelifted 2008 has been revealed in Europe, but it’s not yet known when this will arrive in Australia.

What does the Peugeot 2008 include in each grade?

The petrol versions have Peugeot’s 1.2-litre PureTech three-cylinder engine.

Base Allure and GT use a 96kW/230Nm PureTech 130 example, mated to a six-speed automatic, while the GT Sport employs a PureTech 155 with 114kW and 240Nm, mated to an eight-speed auto.

The Allure and GT’s economy is 6.5L/100km; the GT Sport a more efficient 6.1L/100km.

The E-2008 GT has a single electric motor turning its front wheels, offering 100kW and 260Nm. Its 50kWh battery gives range of 328km (WLTP), with charge speed up to a maximum of 100kW.

Charging with a 10A domestic plug (2.3kW) from 0-100 per cent takes approximately 24 hours. Using a single phase (7.4kW) wallbox does the same in around 7.5 hours, and a three phase (11kW) wallbox approximately five hours.

All 2008s feature a 434 litre boot, though not all come with a spare wheel

Using a 100kW DC fast charger can boost the battery from 0-80 per cent in 30 minutes.

The petrol models weigh a lightweight 1247kg, but the E-2008 GT is a heftier 1548kg.

Maximum braked towing is 1200kg, but the tow ball weight’s a tiny 48kg. The electric E-2008 isn’t rated for towing, like many EVs.

Boot space is 434L – including the E-2008 GT. A 16-inch steel space saver spare is given to the petrol models, while the electric 2008 has a tyre repair kit.
